Unfortunately, the CIA took so long on its tests to show that a marine mammal, normally wet, could get dry for a while without flipper damage, that the White House decided that Donald should avoid the ceremony and stay dry, just in case he developed heel splints by getting wet.

Well they are stealthy when airborne and very fast underwater but equal opportunities no way. The females never stop nattering and can be heard for miles.

Early attempts at cloning Dolly the Sheep had proved unsuccessful.

With a single bound, Dolly leapt out of the frying pan and swam off to communicate with David Attenborough about her next film contract.

Flipper finds that the Tuna sandwich he swiped from the small child in the front row at Seaworld was actually his long lost uncle Dora and went crazy till subdued by the trainers

Well, I'm feeling a little flat with the timely & sad news floating around today, so I think I'll call this one...

Runner up: Wensleydale (because someone had to do it!)

That was no accident - he did it on porpoise.

And, with respect, the winner of the innaugural D-CST... MPN11

Meanwhile the RN continued with their Goldfish training programme. Slowly.

Well done MPN. Now you really will need a lot of polish and a dry cloth for the DCST trophy.

24 hours rest?

Oh, not me AGAIN! Thank you, Sir!

I agree with Buster and PN ... I find that jollity is the last thing on my mind right now after yesterday's sad news. Indeed, I'm amazed at how badly it affected me.

I shall post a new pic tomorrow. I have one ready.

Sadly the greatest generation is going West at a terrible rate. The first remembrance parade I attended in uniform was as an AB in 1978. There was a whole platoon of World War 1 vets, the last was the year before I retired in 2014 with only a few World War 2 vets able to march. I guess all we can do is honour their memory by not forgetting....
